'Toy Story 3' Smashes Record in U.K. Box Office




It becomes the most successful animated movie ever in the country's box office after pulling $31.5 million in the opening weekend.

"Toy Story 3" has smashed records at the U.K. box office by scoring the highest grossing debut for an animated movie. The third and final installment of the hit Pixar franchise pulled in $31.5 million over its opening weekend in Britain.

The huge takings make the new "Toy Story" the most successful animated movie ever at the U.K. box office, as well as the second biggest British opening of all time behind "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" in 2004. The family film knocks Leonardo DiCaprio's "Inception" from the number one slot, falling to number two with $6.2 million, while "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" remains at three with $2.1 million.

"Shrek Forever After" is at four with a haul of $1.8 million and Catherine Zeta-Jones' latest offering, "The Rebound", rounds out the top five with $540,000.
